FOWC with Fandango — Leisure

FOWCWelcome to December 4, 2018 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “leisure.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.

    — To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
    Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
    To the last syllable of recorded time;
    And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
    The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
    Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
    And then is heard no more. It is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
    Signifying nothing.

    It’ll be up tomorrow.

      I don’t know either… except that it’s apparently a kind of link.

      It’s simple. To create a pingback, just link to another WordPress blog post from within a blog post or a page on your own site. In WordPress you create a link by highlighting the text you want to link. Next, click the Insert/edit link button on the toolbar. In the pop-up box that appears, enter the URL you want to link to.

        Sadly I have no idea what you’re talking about, you have no idea how little I know about this sort of thing. I’m not even certain where my toolbar is , let alone finding the Insert/edit link button which as far as I know have never come across. I may have a look later when I have a few hours to spare.

          You can try googling “creating a pingback in WordPress.”
